    Melissa,

    I hope you are not done with this.

    Scriptures tell us to be diligent and search them out.

    Scriptures tell us to Ask, and to seek.

    Scriptures tell us to be prepared to defend our beliefs.

    Scriptures tell us to love one another,

    By edification,

    By prayer,

    By fellowship,

    By spreading the Gospel.

    Gifts, knowledge, conviction, strength, teaching; all come from the Holy Spirit (Comforter, etc.)

    Although we may disagree with our brother or sister, we should take it to the Lord in prayer, search the Scriptures, and be prepared for the light received from the Holy Ghost.

    Prayers and Blessings for your continued journey. We never know how Jehovah or Yahshua will use us to touch another.

  • Ralph Jr and Sarah Mutchler Mutchler on Philippians 4:19
    I had asked a question about the verse read in: Malachi 4:5; earlier of who would be the Prophet to come that is called: Elijah. I do believe that Elijah, was Jesus Christ. Because the name: Elijah, means a miracle worker and God is. Amen.
  • Robert sagun - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 11:24
    John 6:55 is the prophesy of Christ that his church (Church of Christ would do until he comes again in the resurection.
  • Ralph Jr and Sarah Mutchler Mutchler on Philippians 4:19
    What prophet will come before the Lord comes for his people, that is call Elijah? Read in the KJV Bible: 4:5?

    The King James Bible is a Protestant Bible brought out of the Protestant Reformation. It was written in the English Language. Prior to the 1611 King James Bible the Holy Scriptures were written and hand copied in Latin, Greek, and Hebrew. One thing that the Reformation achieved was, through the invention of the printing press, the Bible was printed in the languages of the common people throughout Europe, thanks in large part to Martin Luther who translated the New Testament into the German Language. A lot of the reason why there are so many different versions of the Bible was political. The Catholic Church controlled religion and the average person did not have access to the Latin Vulgate Bible and hence the Church dictated what people knew about Salvation. Once the Bible was translated into the common language of the people the Church lost a lot of control over the masses. People began to read and think out their own Salvation apart from the Pope and the Catholic Church.
  • Bendito Palavra - in Reply on Luke 11:13
    The best evidence of the Holy Spirit in a person is that Jesus Christ is glorified:

    (John 16:13-15) - Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you. All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.

    (1 Corinthians 12:3) - Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.

    The same chapter 12 in 1 Corinthians lists certain gifts of the Spirit and explains their true purpose; to build up the Church. Tongues was but one of the sign gifts. Paul teaches its proper place in 1 Corinthians chapter 14.

    Ephesians chapter 5 exhorts us to walk worthy and be filled with the Spirit.

    The fruit of the Spirit is evidence of our walking in the Spirit:

    (Galatians 5:22-23) But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
  • Joshua on 1 Timothy 6:10
    Remember how Jesus said that man cannot serve both God and mammon(riches, status, fleshly esteem)? Matthew 6:24, Luke 16:13
  • Toni - in Reply on Matthew 4:4
    No we are not in the tribulation, but the rapture could take place any second! There are no other significant events in the bible required to occur before for rapture of the true church, the bride of Christ. The bible gives clear examples of God's people being taken out before great destruction takes place (ex. Sodom and Gomorrah & The Great Flood of Noah, and uses these as a comparison to our current situation).
  • Earl Bowman - in Reply on 1 Thessalonians 5:18
    Sunday, by the gracing of the Holy Spirit, let us see if the Spirit can clarify the words in Psalms 8:3-6. First let us clarify whose words are spoken by the psalmist. II Samuel 23:1-2 Now these be the last words of David, David the son of Jesse said, and the man who was raised up on high, the anointed of the God of Jacob, and the sweet psalmist of Israel, said, (vs) 2 The spirit of the Lord (God) spake by me (David), and his (Gods) word was in my (Davids) tongue. God is speaking the words in the psalms not David. Psalms 8:3-6 When I (Jesus) consider thy (Gods) heavens (literal and symbolic of us), the work of thy (Gods) fingers, the moon (literal and symbolic of Jesus) and the stars (literal and symbolic of angels), which thou (God) hast ordained; (vs) 4 What is man (us) that thou (God) are mindful of him (us)? and the son of man (Jesus) that thou (God) visitest him (Jesus)? For thou (God) hast made him (Jesus in the flesh) a little lower than the angles (messengers of Spirit), and (God) has crowned him (Jesus) with glory and honour. Thou (God) madest him (Jesus) to have dominion over the works of thy (Gods) hands; and thou (God) hast put all things under his (Jesus) feet. Jesus has dominion over all things not us. May the Spirit grace you with his words.
  • Stanjett on Psalms 23:3
    The Angel that wrestled with Jacob was an angel. Not Jesus. The statement itself tells you it was a angel. Not a man and not Jesus.
  • Fanisile Matentamo on Psalms 37:2
    If a believer sees the pervesion of justice in the society or in the church, should one look the other way ? Is that what is suggested by Psalms 37, when it says do not fret with the evil doers ?
  • Dan Favata on Acts 5:30
    I was raised Catholic and always believed it was a cross that Jesus was hung on! It makes more sense because on his walk to the place where he died he had to bear the weight of the cross, he wasnt bearing a tree!!! The saying " it is my cross to bear" says alot !!!!!!!! and besides every movie Ive ever saw concerning his life and death always made reference and showed a Cross not a tree!!!!!!!!

  • Brother dan - in Reply on 1 John 1
    Dear D.J.

    I agree. As long as Satan is loose on this earth he will be busy constantly/continually tempting everyone ....especially Christians. We are "not perfect" so we will slip at times. We can be assured that when we do sin....we can ask Christ to be forgiven.

    Jesus tells us below

    Luke 17:4

    "And if he trespass against thee seven times in a day, and seven times in a day turn again to thee, saying, I repent; thou shalt forgive him."

    Jesus will forgive us when we sin, if we ask and repent. He knows our heart, and he knows if we are trying our best and he understands each of us!

    God Bless.

  • Fred Scanlan - in Reply on Mark 8
    Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. Looking through a glass darkly would not present the past, Paul is speaking of the future, since we are talking about the salvation of man ,and the kingdom of God. One Lord, one faith, one baptism. When our Lord died on the cross it was one time only, not 2. The redemption for mankind ,for the world 1 Time! This was the hope of Abraham ,Isaac, Jacob. David, the promise that you say is clouded? This anointing we receive, is his shed blood! 1 time for the sins of the world.
  • Fred Scanlan - in Reply on Mark 8
    The spiritual kingdom is the kingdom Christ established on earth after Christ resurrection. The church are those that teach and believe that he will fulfil his word when He returns for his church. His "bride. All through the gospel we see evidence that his own received him not. I wonder if Christ preferred to be alone with this blind man since he was brought unto him, knowing once that they maybe trying to deceive him into there own craftiness? Not unlike today who deny him, even those of the "nation" of Israel. There are always those who want to disclaim Him, even in the church of our own nation. It is a good interpretation nevertheless. God is saving us all the time. Even before our very own eyes!
  • Please take this for what it is. Innocent questions for someone posting here. As this has no judgement or condemnation. No boasting or flaunting. Nor prideful or arrogant. The Truth shall set us free.

    Are we not to be kind to one another? Does God enjoy the meek and humble or the prideful and arrogant? Does God want us to boast about earthly things? Should we forgive or condemn others? Is love not the most important thing we have from God through Jesus Christ? How can one assume so much about someone with knowing so little about them?

    Just as intimate prayer, from the heart, to the Lord is very important. As such to commune personally, to one another, the love of God through His Word. Along with producing good fruit that makes our Eternal Father rejoice with gladness.

    God Bless you all my brothers and sisters!
  • Earl Bowman - in Reply on Mark 8
    Alex, a second witness to the woman in Revelation 12, I Timothy 2:14-15 And Adam (symbolic of Christ) was not deceived, but the woman (symbolic of us, as is the woman in Revelation 12) being deceived was in the transgression. (vs) 15 Notwithstanding she (the woman, us) shall be saved (from death) in childbearing (by giving birth to a child (us) fathered by the Holy Ghost, same as was Christ, for our life is Christ), if they (all women, all of us are the woman) continue in faith (in Christ) and charity (in Christ) and holiness (in Christ) with sobriety(in Christ).
  • Andy G van den Berg on 2 Thessalonians 2:3
    On 2 THESS. 2:3

    The Word of God is God (John 1:1) and not for any private interpretation (2 Peter 1:20). If it records in Revelation 12:9 that this whole world has been deceived, it did not speak of a particular country, group of people, person or religion, it meant the whole world.

    For a better understanding and the 'spiritual truth' what it means to repent, and learn how and by whom (2 Corinthians 11:13-15) this whole world has been deceived and what mankind must do to be reunited with the true and living God, we invite you to seek Him according to the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive (Matthew 7:7; John 14:17).

    The word 'Repent' in different forms (repent, repentance, repented, repentest, repenteth, repenting), is mentioned 110 times in the KJV, and there seems to be a great misconception what the true 'spiritual' meaning of the word is. The word 'repent' used in the New Testament was translated from the Greek word "metanoeo", and means to change, transform, to think differently or reconsider.

    Only through Repentance will God be able to reveal Himself, and adopt you as His sons and daughters (Romans 8:15,23; 2 Corinthians 6:18; Galatians 4:5; Ephesians 1:5; Hebr. 12:5; 1 John 3:1) and reveal to you how this whole world has been deceived (Revelation 12:9) and overcome this world (1 John 5:4).

    The word 'Repent' means a lot more than what people by nature have been conditioned to believe. It is the key principle of all the teachings of Jesus Christ and the axiom (basis) of the Word of God and a prerequisite and primary requirement for the salvation of mankind. It means the changing of spirits - to turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan unto God (Acts 26:18).

    It is only by revelation of God that people will come to know the true Christ (Daniel 12:4,9; Amos 3:7; Matthew 16:17; Luke 2:26; Romans 16:25; 1 Cor. 2:10; Galatians 1:16; Ephesians 3:3,5; Revelation 1:1). It should be remembered that it is a narrow way that leadeth unto 'Life', and few there be that find it (Matthew 7:14).

    It's only sin if you know it's wrong before you do it.
  • A Jewish Wedding vs Being Caught Up to Jesus on Matthew 26
    These are actual 7 steps of a Jewish wedding.

    1. First, the Jewish groom barters with the father of the bride. They get together and they go back-and-forth, and barter as to what the deal is going to be.

    2. Once they reach an agreement, the future bride is brought in. And if she approves of it, all three of them drink out of the covenant cup, which means from that time forward they are betrothed.

    3. The groom goes back to his father's house to build their living quarters. It is built right off of the family home. And once the wedding takes place, and they are now married, they will go back to his family's home, and there will be living quarters that will be for them.

    4. The father of the groom decides when the living quarters are done, and when he can go get his bride. What does that tell us? We don't know the time or the hour. It has to be a minimum of one year because it is a time of purity for her. The groom can go get his bride when his father decides it's time.

    5. When the marriage announcement is made, catch this: the people who have already been invited to the wedding feast, they take their positions along the parade route, because the groom is going to get his bride. And there are people stationed in position all the way along the route. They join the parade as it passes by. It is called a parade.

    6. When the groom reaches the bride's house, he stands at a distance and blows the shofar, the trumpet, for the bride to come out and meet him. And the wedding takes place at that time. Do you see anything in there about prophecy? The groom comes to get his bride, and he stands a ways off and blows the trumpet, and she comes out to meet him.

    7. The parade goes back to the groom's house and the wedding feast begins. All of the guests in the parade gather in the Fellowship Hall, and the door is shut. This is not an open public thing.

    Compare this to prophecy in Matthew Chapter 25
  • Prayer for today on Matthew 26

  • Earl Bowman - in Reply on Psalms 33
    Marilyn, you are correct, thy kingdom come, is "today" Christ in you.
  • Andy G van den Berg on Mark 3
    To ALEX

    Your comments are a compilation of vain religious doctrines and commandments (Matthew 15:9; Isaiah 29:13; Colossians 2:18; 1 Timothy 1:6,7; Titus 1:14) that are not able to provide salvation to mankind.

    Regardless of the thin air in Nova Scotia as described by Fred Scanlan, please do know that our website and Ministry in Christ moves very well with the Holy Spirit and was visited last year by people from over 160 countries. There are 193 countries in the world, while the Vatican and Palestine are observer States. Also, we much prefer to breath the cleaner air in Nova Scotia rather than the air out West.

    Please remember: You need not that any man teach you (Isaiah 54:13; 6:45; 1 John 2:27), It is only by revelation of God that you will come to know Christ (Daniel 12:4,9; Amos 3:7; Matthew 16:17; Luke 2:26; Romans 16:25; 1 Cor. 2:10; Galatians 1:16; Ephesians 3:3,5; Revelation 1:1).

    You are currently travelling on a 'wide' road and be reminded that it is a narrow way that leadeth unto 'Life', and few there be that find it (Matthew 7:13,14). The emphasis is on the word 'few'.

    Seek, and ye shall find (Matthew 7:7). Don't let your self-righteousness stand in the way of your salvation (Romans 10:3,4).

    In His Service.

    Andy & Dianne van den Berg - Nova Scotia, Canada
